When did you first start listening to Judas Priest?

Must have been 1978 or 1979.

What does the music of Judas Priest mean to You?

Music and especially Judas Priest is a big part of my life. Like no other band they have the ability to deliver what i need at every certain moment.
If i am mellow, they have the power to get me back on track, if i am excited they know how to calm me down. There is a song for every situation in their repertoir.

What is Your favourite Priest album and song?

It is incerdibely hard to pick only one album and it is absolutely impossible to pick just one song.
Sad wings of Destiny, Stained Class, Painkiller. Three totally
different albums but eachone is a masterpiece and i love them equaly. If i have to pick one: Stained Class. But i would miss the others.

Have You ever seen Priest live and from those, what was your best experience?

Yes, seen them many times. I wouldn’t want to decide which one was the best, but the coolest one was definitely when i traveled to London to see them rock the Royal Albert Hall.

Last greetings for K.K. and the Steel Mill staff?

Well K.K. i’ve never met you off stage, but if i ever do you’d have a looooooot of items to sign :-)) -Just kidding-
